Three Greek football fans sit in the stands of the Karaiskaki Stadium before the national soccer team takes on Georgia in its final World Cup qualifier last night. Greece won the game 1-0 with a goal from striker Dimitris Papadopoulos in the first half but failed to make a play-off berth, which was snapped up by Turkey following its 1-0 victory over Albania. Greece finished fourth in the group. German coach Otto Rehhagel still refused to make it clear if he would renew his contract, which runs until the end of the year. Some 68 percent of fans want him to stay, according to a phone poll by Mega television channel last night.
